Here's the deal with the cartridge alignment page....the machine will spit out a series of black lines mixed with yellow ink and at the beginning of each of these lines is a "Green" check mark. The carriage moves back and forth over these lines and green check marks and reads them by use of what is called a "spot sensor" that resides on the right side of the carriage assembly. This is usually noticed by the blue ray of light that shines out of it. So if you are getting an alignment failure one of two things is happening....1)You've have got a bad cartridge (usually the color) and it is not laying down the right colors, specifically the green check mark or 2)You've got a bad spot sensor...even though it may still be shining the blue light, the sensor board can't process the information. Its an easy fix either way.

1. Disconnect the power cord from the unit, wait five seconds, and then plug it back in. This will reinitialize the unit. 2. Print another alignment test page.

Press the right arrow button (>) until Align Print Cartridges is displayed, and then press Enter or OK (depending on the model). 3. To determine if the automatic alignment is functioning correctly, look into the output tray as the alignment page is printing; a blue light should be visible periodically on the page as the cartridges move back and forth. If this light is not visible, the product will not be able to align the cartridges and will require service. Service the product. 4. If the blue light is visible and the alignment pages are printing correctly, but the alignment pages still fails, there still may be a hardware problem with the unit.

open the cover, make sure your cartriges are properly seated. it will proabably still ask you to re-align the cartriges. all this does (usually) is print a page and then ask you some questions about thw eay that page printed.
also, try turing you printer off and back on. (resatarting your PC with you printer may also help somehow, but that's pure unfounded speculation based on the experience that restarting the device usually fixes it...).
it is necessary to place the allign page in the scanner and then press the enter button and the scanner will read the allign ment page as it will take 2 minutes and then it will display the message allignment complete message then it will become normal as it was .so after u get the allignment page place it in the scanner unit of the printer and then press enter.
